James Shields will be looking to bounce back from a weak Game 1 outing on Sunday night as his Kansas City Royals face the San Francisco Giants in Game 5 of the World Series.
The Royals lost Game 1 of the World Series to the Giants after Shields allowed five runs on seven hits in just three innings of work. Madison Bumgarner gave up just one run on three hits over seven innings in that Game 1 win for San Francisco, and the lefthander gets the ball again on Sunday.
